The Geezers are a special "patrol" for uniformed adult leaders and parents who go on troop campouts.
We organized the Geezer patrol for two reasons:
to set an example of camping and cooking that the Scout patrols could see and follow (we can tell them a thousand times, but seeing an example and deciding to follow it themselves works better)
to give inexperienced parents a place to eat and camp, and to give them a place to be near their sons without "meddling" in the boy leadership operation of theirs sons' patrols
Our adult patrol has great times together, sharing ideas, watching and helping the Scouts as needed. The camaraderie is great, and we are getting some moms on campouts as well as dads. We even have a patrol flag.
